one was a 7 cell grade 4 and one 8 cell grade 4 on day 3. They said they were fragmented and they grade 1-5...with 1 being the best. The RE said the cell number was great and what they want for day 3 and didnt seem that concerned at the grade 4 but it makes me nervous.
The clinic I use grade them 1-5 with 5 being the best. I had 2 grade 3's, 1 grade 4, and 3 grade 2's. They transferred the grade 4 and the grade 3's, and did not freeze the grade 2's, because they said they do not usually implant. I don't know if my grade 2 is comparible to your grade 4, just telling you what I know.
I looked at your pics and it was kinda hard for me to see with the gray scale and the angle, but they look pretty good from what I could see. I would just try not to worry and pray for the best. Are you on bedrest now? If your not, I would try to stay off your feet as much as possible. There are some clinics that require bedrest for 3 days post transfer, so if you can, do that and it might help.
Good luck to you. I'm not sure if I helped or not.
My RE said 5 is the worst but mine looked far better than a 5 which kind of confused me because I mean how far off can a 4 be??? They didnt seem to look that bad to me either so I don't know. Maybe they were close to a 3 who knows. I am doing bed rest. They say 24 to 48 hours at my clinic. I will take about 48 hours as I have to work at 10am tomorrow...but for only 6 hours. I will try and take it easy after that and I have monday off too.
I had 17 eggs, 8 mature and 6 total fertilize they were all graded a 4 and two stopped growing on day 2. We did ICSI as we have unexplained infertility so we want to do everything possible. We also did assisted hatching on the two implanted. The other two that we didnt implant, they are watching for 2 more days to see if they are freezable. One was 10 cell and the other 5 cell on day 3. I am not sure I want them to be or not at this point.
I am very new to ivf and I'm so glad to find this forum, its been great help for me because this is my first cycle, I had my transfer on the 6th of july and have been waiting for the 2ww, I'm so nervous and very anxious about testing on the 20th, anybody has an idea what to expect on day seven or day eight? I've been having light cramps almost every evening, my RE nurse told that was perfectly normal. What is the meaning of AF?
I am 9w3d pg and have not spotted at any time. But everyone is different. I would let your doc know about it, but overall, they say as long as it's not enough to change a pad every hour, that it is normal, of course as long as you are not having severe pain along with it. I would still let your doc know to be safe. Good luck to you all!
This is my second IVF, last one failed. I have 33 years old. This time we had 8 embryos, they transferred at day 5th two, graded as expanded blast( good) and the other one as early blast ( fair). We know since today that they decided no to freeze the rest of the embryos, we were really sad about that. Now I don't know if I have to be hopeful with the embryos they transferred. I would like to here any comments, thank you !
Hi there!!! I know you had a question about embryo quality. I had two 5 day blasts transfered in the begining of February. They both stuck!!! I am 15 weeks pregnant!!! My RE says his success percentage is higher with 5 day blasts! When will you know if you are pregnant? Best of luck to you! I am sending lots of sticky baby dust your way!!!
